We are Building a GoKart!

We have built robots and quadcopters but we have never built a gokart. With some time off and a free engine the only remaining question was, why not build it? Here is some footage of the 2hp Briggs and Stratton engine running. We got he engine off of an old 1950s lawn mower we got off the curb. Although the lawn mower is from the 1950s it still turned over with new gas and new spark plugs along with some starting fluid. Here is a video of it running with the clutch installed and the wheels attached.
